Celestial Cosmetics Valyrio Collection

Press  Sample

Hey there!  I'm so late with this post.  The Valyrio Collection from Celestial Cosmetics was released in April.  Celestial Cosmetics is a 3-free, cruelty-free brand out of Australia but all the polishes in this collection were designed by another Aussie, the lovely Christine from one of my favourite blogs, Serenity Nails.  Game of Thrones was the inspiration for this collection, an obsession that Christine and I share.  I'll leave it to her swatch post to describe the inspirations polish-by-polish.  Needless to say they came up with some great polishes to go with their namesakes.


The formulas of all of these were great.  I've used quite a few Celestial Cosmetics polishes and her formula is always on point.  I've photographed each polish in the light box and in direct artificial light so you can hopefully get a good feel for how these beauties look.

If I had to pick a favourite here, it would be Kirimvos.  The mix of holo and flakies reminds me mermaids and I love my nails to look like mermaids!  This collection is still available at Color4Nails so get it before it's gone.
